Taking action


The big news this week is that two planets change signs. Firstly, Mars moves from Leo into Virgo and secondly, Mercury moves from Cancer to Leo.
When planets change signs, it offers a change in tone and in this case, it’s the tone of action and communication that shifts. Until Aug. 28, Mars in Virgo delivers precise and strategic action. If you’ve been meandering a little bit or loosening the boundaries, Mars in Virgo will help you run a tighter ship and get things done. This might mean cutting back or cutting away the non-essential or the frivolous. Mars may inspire you to develop a plan of action and get to work on a plan or project. He may spur you into a two -year action plan.
Mercury in Leo can help you communicate with courage. To speak up and out for what is true and right. As Venus slows down in preparation for her upcoming retrograde, Mercury can guide you through the confusing territory especially if you’re having a change of heart about something. If you need to have an important conversation about what you need, want and deserve, this week may help you organize your thoughts and feelings and begin taking the appropriate action towards the longer term.
